As of late, my audio world has been true wireless earbuds (for when I exercise) and over-ear ANC headphones (for while I’m working). There is another category out there for headphones that I have a bit of a fascination with – bone conduction headsets. My buddy got a pair a few years ago, and I was surprised by how well they worked. Well, now we’ve got Sentien bringing another set to your cranium.(more…)
In the last year or so, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to headphones, particularly wireless ones that let me roam around my basement as the work day unfolds. My ears are nowhere near audiophile grade, but I still can appreciate when something is reproducing sound – and doing it well. That’s what the newest hues of the DALI IO lineup have to offer.(more…)
A little bit ago, we brought you word of some rather exciting-sounding new earbuds from Anker. I’ve become a big fan of their over-ear ANC headphones (both the Q20 and the Q30), but I’ve had mixed success with how well ANC works in earbuds. So, of course we got a sample in, and I spent some time with it over the past few weeks to get a feel for the earbuds.(more…)
We have definitely gotten into the swing of reviewing more audio products over the last year, though we’ve tended to focus more on the personal aspect of audio – be it via earbuds, headphones, or even headphone amps. Well, what if you want to share the sound? That’s where a solid bluetooth speaker can be handy, such as one like the Enacfire Soundtank that we got in recently.(more…)
While it seems like – as of late – that I’ve been all about the over-ear headphones (which I must admit are great for working from home), I’m also still a fan of earbuds. I used them back when I went to the gym (in the before days), for popping onto a quick phone call, and even now when I go out for my morning jog. One of the latest I’ve checked out are the Urbanista Athens earbuds.(more…)
You know us – we’re all about new headphones hitting the market. Some folks like earbuds, others like over-ear; some folks want wires, and others want to cut the cord. That’s why we like seeing new stuff come out – it’s likely hitting a sweet spot for someone who just hasn’t found the right one yet. Recently, Anker came out swinging with the announcement of the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds.(more…)
There seem to be a veritable plethora of options out in the market when it comes to headphones. There’s the big names out there, of course, and that gives us comfort with an established brand. If you want to go off the beaten path, though, there are some interesting designs to be found. One of the most recent are the Urbanista Miami ANC Headphones.(more…)
This year, I’ve been all about the headphones. This is quite a change from using an inexpensive wired headset from my phone on the laptop for calls, through various ANC Bluetooth headphones (such as this one) and now sort of full circle, with a wired headset that is worlds better than the one I was given at the office. Enter the SCUF H1.(more…)
What does a MicPort Pro 2 do for you?
Suppose you were a voice-over artist, a podcaster, a Twitch streamer, or just wanted to up your audio game when holding Zoom meetings?
You?d need a good microphone, and a good microphone interface.(more…)
